Local Wild Seasonal Preserved Food, 2016

Month: September


From the left: sloe, crab apple, and blackberry jam; dried field mushrooms; roasted sweet chestnuts; dried water mint.


A play with locality and foraging food, I looked at how you can interrogate a specific place by searching for wild food available in that area. Once found, I then preserved what I could as a sort-of play with the fad of seasonal foraged food month. Although this is only a single month, I could gather food for every month and present it as data for a specific locality.

Found within a 1 mile radius of my parents home in Oxfordshire.
